Re: Is this typical of tmj?
Ah yes I have experimented a bit. It is there most of the time, but it tends to be a bit better in the morning, and starts to get worse when I start to talk and eat etc. I think when I am working I also clench my teeth a bit without noticing and that does not help. I have tried taking out the denture and that increases the pain I think, because it feels like my jaw can not find a comfortable resting position. I am starting to think it may be the denture causing the problem a bit because i have a few denture sores again under the bottom plate and that does change my bite a bit because it becomes uncomfortable. If I remember correctly, I think a similar thing may have happened the last time I had sores.
I am also under some added stress right now, because I have to move to another country again in a couple of weeks, and I am not too sure what to expect. Although I should be used to it by now because I have already lived in so many different countries. Hahaha....
